Review of DELL Inspiron 14R laptop (with Touch Display)

Tablets, nowadays are good enough to fulfill most of our needs on the move. However, there are times that I still prefer laptop over tablet. Recently, I manage to get hold of DELL Inspiron 14R laptop. Powered by Windows 8. With touchscreen capabilities, it has made navigation within Windows 8 easier.

What I like

  • Value for money: you get almost everything you need in a laptop with reasonable performance in every aspects. You get 3 x USB ports (2 x USB3.0 & 1 x USB 2.0), 1 x HDMI port and a DVD writer. Sufficient battery life to get your work done on the go.
  • Wave MaxxAudio: Good sound quality from the inbuilt speaker (It gets better if you plug in to your headphone) A perfect companion when you get bored with inflight entertainment.

What I dislike 

  • Thick and heavy

 

 

This is a budget laptop that meant to get work done while at the same time, serve as a mobile entertainment device. Cost-conscious consumers like students and businesses might find this a suitable laptop for them.
